Why We Love It

It's never too early to start the tradition of reading to a child! Storytime creates lifelong memories as well as providing youngsters with a wider vocabulary and more confident communication skills. Whether board books for infants, picture books for toddlers and young children, or early readers and chapter books for more confident readers, putting a book into a child's hands expands the boundaries of their imaginative possibilities.
